Paul's conversion showed that Jesus himself wanted the gospel message to go to the Gentiles, quashing any argument from the early Jewish Christians that the gospel was only for the Jews.
Saul witnessed the risen Christ, which fulfilled the qualification of an apostle (Acts 1:21-22). Only those who had seen the risen Christ could testify to his resurrection.
Jesus did not distinguish between his church and his followers, and himself. Jesus told Saul he had been persecuting him. Anyone who persecutes Christians, or the Christian church, is persecuting Christ himself.
In one moment of fear, enlightenment, and regret, Saul understood that Jesus was the true Messiah and that he (Saul) had helped murder and imprison innocent people. Despite his previous beliefs as a Pharisee, he now knew the truth about God and was obligated to obey him. Paul's conversion proves that God can call and transform anyone he chooses, even the most hard-hearted.
Paul's remarkable story is repeated every day as sinful and broken people throughout the world are transformed by God's saving grace in Christ Jesus.
That's exactly what we want to capture in this series, because there are many today who need to hear and see how God's love can change their lives, just as it did with Paul.
In this series, we want to focus on the life of Paul. We want to give him the whole Biblical context of those times and show the difficulties that the Apostle and his collaborators lived through to make known the Good News.
